Being new to Denver means lots of exploring and trying new things. Last week we ventured to Lakewood (about 45 minutes) and had a ball with our new friends creating ceramic masterpieces at Color Me Mine. The street on which the gallery is located is sophisticated and gorgeous, filled with eateries and shops galore. Truth, after we painted we had some tasty gelato across the street!
The kids picked out their ceramics and learned quickly that panting is FUN! The more coats that they put on, the darker the colors would become. J chose this dragon and made it beautiful. I love it on her bookshelf.
Z chose a bunny (her FAVORITE) animal and it is perfect in her room. I love the magic of what happens in the kiln. Here is a picture of her before/after.
I painted a few pieces for Z’s new bathroom (crazy that she has her very own) to match the shower curtain and wall art that I created for her with tie-dye and fabric paints from iLoveToCreate. Adorable, right?
The process worked like this. We went in to the studio, picked our pieces out and painted them. Z finished first and had a ball playing on her new phone!
Then we had to wait a few days for them to “fire” them and make them look all glazed and glossy. When I went back to get them, they were packed up super awesome in bubble wrap in a Color Me Mine shopping tote.
I didn’t make it out of the parking lot before tearing into this one. I made it for a tray for my husband’s dresser (anniversary gift). Our wedding song was “The Stars are Ours Tonight” so I painted stars.
He reminds me often that even though I am silly and all over the place, he is “all in” which makes my heart fill up. I found this brochure in our kitchen and for a moment thought that I might be getting a frog from him. No luck.
You can follow Color Me Mine on social media and hopefully find one near you (they are all over the world)!
